generator. she did not turn the lights out. in other news, john mccain says he's still not sure how he's going to vote on chuck hagel but he opposes a filibuster for chuck hagel and karl rove is forming yet another super pac to take on fellow republicans. would you buy a used car from this man? i don't think so. why anybody would trust him with a dime after he blew $400 million the last time around. we'll also take a look at president obama yesterday in minneapolis saying people have to decide do they stand with cops or kids. all of that coming up right here on current tv. >> nine. >> this is what 27 tons of marijuana looks like.

john mccain who said this morning this is going to cost a million jobs if we do the sequester. i happen to think that's a highest mat but it's not just democrats. >> with all respect to john mccain, his record may be worse than the cato institute and mine. >> spending was cut from 22% of gdp to 18% of gdp. spending was cut a lot, those are big numbers and guess, what the economy boomed. sometimes if you leave capital in private hand, you get a better economy. >> larry, let me just say -- >> i got to get out of here. >> i am all for the government getting out of the way, it's a matter of a hippocratic oath, do no harm. >> did you say a hypocritical oath? let me get this right. >> hippocratical. >> economic news was mixed but i think the bullish fundamentals still look good and i have a fair and balanced question for everybody out there. can we call this the obama rally? that's right. i'm going to ask that question. later on in the show, she's the woman a lot of democrats and republicans say would have made the best next a second. she joins us later this how to talk about why defense cuts

senator john mccain was questioning secretary panetta and general dempsey and it was a moment when he asked about, it could be lost, in terms of the overall coverage, but it's where he asked whether the two of them supported arming rebels in syria, and many of our viewers may wonder, what does this have to do with benghazi and libya? listen to senator john mccain and then i'll explain. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state, then secretary of state clinton, and then head of cia general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria. >> we did. >> you did support that? >> we did. >> reporter: that's the first time that i've heard that the defense department and military officials say that they had recommended arming syrian rebels. you'll remember over the weekend that "the new york times" reported that last summer petraeus and clinton approached the white house for permission to arm the rebels. "the new york times" says that the white house rejected that request. however, there have been some implications from questions from senators on the hill as to
, senator john mccain is alleging a massive cover-up on the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. >> so it's the state department's fault? who would you blame? who is responsible then? i've always had to keep my eye on her... but, i didn't always watch out for myself. with so much noise about health care... i tuned it all out. with unitedhealthcare, i get information that matters... my individual health profile. not random statistics. they even reward me for addressing my health risks. so i'm doing fine... but she's still going to give me a heart attack. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare.

that did not harm but would gather information. this administration ran against john mccain saying, even though john mccain agreed, yeah, we don't want to water board, we don't want to do anything that somebody might someday call torture, they complained, gee, this is allowing radicals to be recruited against the united states because of the unjust nature of doing a procedure that's not harmful to someone's health, to gather information to save american lives, which it did. here we are now with this administration that thought waterboarding helped jeeyaddists -- jihadists recruit more radicals using a process of having a high administration official think to himself or herself, i don't think this may be enough. blow them up. without giving adequate consideration to civilians who will be killed, to family members who will be upset, to the ability of our enemies to use that to recruit other radicals, many times over, to replace those that have been killed with a drone strike. this administration's systemic failure to understand what the muslim brotherhood calls, quote, civilization jihad,
. on tuesday, senator john mccain stood up to his colleague, ted cruz, and defended hagel. >> senator hagel is an honorable man. he has served his country and no one on this committee at any time should impugn his character or his integrity. >> but yesterday, mccain told politico he hasn't made up his mind on a filibuster and was waiting to see whether the white house will respond to a letter requesting more information about not hagel, but about obama's actions and orders the night of the benghazi attack. quote, we are hoping to get an answer to a simple question. and what did the president do during benghazi is now becoming a rallying cry. >> know the debate on chuck hagel is not over. it has not been serious. we don't have the information we need. and i am going to fight the idea of jamming somebody through. i'm going to hit you and keep hitting you, absolutely! you're not going to get away with not answering basic questions. >> the vote is going to be close. and senate democrats are bracing themselves for republicans denying them 60 votes. two republican senators are supporting hagel's
for john mccain and mitt romney. there's no conservative movement left. i want to say that i am officially done and my two brothers are with their families with republicans. i guess i call myself a man without a party. marco rubio will give the response in spanish and english. this is just -- it started with karl rove, the architect, that little nerd -- if i see him one more time on tv -- is the architect of the destruction of the gop. he gave us obama. the idea of reaching out and becoming democrats. what democrats aren't are people who believe in a group identity and hyphenated americanism. we conservatives believe in assimilation. that's why he's not going to give a response in german or italian. we will hear all the lofty platitudes and trite things from obama about a nation of immigrants. it was a somewhat perverse people being melted down by the fires of assimilation and being made similar -- it was a people meltedrdiverse down by the fires of assimilation. nobody would know marco rubio. he looks like the beaver. i will not follow him because he is a trendy minority. having to reach
some of the things that john mccain has been pushing hard. doesn't the united states have to do more? >> i think the answer is yes. i mean, it's clear that there are risks in acting, but i think we have to take a look at what are the risks and costs of not acting. and i think we have to keep in mind the kind of red lines that the president has established in the use of chemical weapons or the israelis have established in terms of -- >> just look at what they've acknowledged in munich that they were involved in that strike which everyone sort of knew, but interesting that he would say so. >> and what it highlights is things are going to happen. you'd rather put us in a position that rather than being driven to do something, we're in a position to try to effect the landscape more and we don't wait to be in a position where we have to react, but we're in a position where we try to influence more what the shape of the landscape is going to be. >> finally, as we look forward to john when in anbrennan's con hearing, how much blow back is in the united states because of the drone attacks an
go ahead. >> welcome back to "hardball." that was senator john mccain grilling his old friend chuck hagel last week at hagel's confirmation hearing. the senate armed services committee was supposed to vote today on hagel's nomination to head the pentagon, but that vote has been postponed after republicans said they hadn't received sufficient information about hagel's financial records and specifically about any payments he's received from foreign sources. that's an odd hurdle given that republicans never seem concerned about foreign revenue sources when it came to nominees from george w. bush. one democratic official working on the hagel nomination told politico, quote, what they're asking is unprecedented, and it's clear that it's information that he's unable to provide. hagel says he can't provide it because it would violate confidentiality of the boards that he serves on. of course, critics say this is about more than incomplete financial records. so why are republicans really holding up hagel's nomination? aaron david miller is vice president for new initiatives at the woodrow w
, and the joint chiefs chairman, general martin dempsey. arizona republican john mccain asked about a report that president obama rejected a proposal to arm syrian rebels last summer. >> did you support the recommendation by secretary of state... then secretary of state clinton and then head of c.i.a. general petraeus that we provide weapons to the resistance in syria? did you support that? >> we did. >> you did support that. >> we did. >> suarez: so far, the president's judgment has been that things won't get better with american arms. instead, he's warned the weapons might fall into the hands of extremist elements, a concern reiterated today by the new secretary of state, who was asked about the deliberations last year. >> i don't know what the discussions were in the white house and i'm not going backwards. the new administration, we're going forward from this point. there are serious questions about al nusra and a.q.i.-- al qaeda in iraq-- and other violent groups on ground. >> suarez: those groups are among the most effective fighters against the assad regime. they include jabhat al nus
. not all of them. you have people like john mccain -- describe the fall but a lot of republicans, privately and publicly, saying that there is room to cut the -- >> as long as you don't -- as long as you hold harmless with everything that deals with troop readiness, that deals with troops on the front lines and military families but there's plenty of room in the procurement budgets, there's plenty of room for reforms and for -- >> i want to come to that in a second, but the problem will be, i think for the white house, broadly and for the country is the point that congressman ellison makes, you hit the sequester right now, that is goign to have a real economic impact right away. >> absolutely, absolutely, and i think you'll hear the president most likely talk about that on tuesday night, tuesday night. we can't have any more self-inflicted wounds on the economy. the economy is poised to take off. if we do the right things. having massive across-the-board cuts to some critical programs i mean you're talking about education, health care, that things that actually we need, cops, to make this -
john mccain, kelly, who is a critic of hagel's to come back to his defense against this freshman senator from texas who is raising the suggestion that he had taken money even from pyongyang or from iran. >> well, what's interesting about mccain's position here is that he has said very clearly that he does not believe that chuck hagel was the right choice in this instance. he believes his performance at his hearing was poor. he took real issue with his fellow republican ted cruz of texas and said that chuck hagel is an honorable man and wanted to defend him in this process. where it gets harder for mccain is that lindsey graham is perhaps his greatest ally in the senate, and he believes that there are legitimate questions about benghazi still to be answered. not so much looking at the past, although politically that's what they want to do. also trying to make sure that they understand what's going on with some of these issues as they may pertain to future hot spots. mccain is not jumping to the ted cruz bandwagon, but i would surmise that he wants to be protective of lindsey graha
nomination as secretary of defense. late today, procedural vote failed after senator john mccain had made the case for waiting until after next week's recess. >> i think that is a sufficient period of time to get answers to outstanding questions and i think that senator hagel after that period of time deserves a cloture vote and a uvote on his. >> i have valued your thoughts and your contributions. i think most all of us in public office feel that way. >> among questions, speeches like to one in june 13, 2008, before the arab american antidiscrimination committee that hagel did not disclose to armed services committee. earlier they blasted republicans for holding up hagel's nomination to lead the pentagon. >> it's shocking that my republican colleagues would leave the nation would a fully empowered secretary of defense. during all the things we have going on in the world, including a war. >> but panetta isn't leaving yet. and 60-vote requirement is not unusual, say republicans and reid was fine when it was president bush's nominees. top republicans say members have legitimate concerns. >>
to decide every day. alisyn: you have a big show coming up on sunday. you will talk to john mccain. you will have nancy pelosi on. what will you talk to her about? >> we'll have john mccain talk about national security. nancy pelosi, of course the president's state of the union address is tuesday. he will lay out his agenda for the second term. we'll have an exclusive interview with house democratic leader nancy pelosi who agrees with the president's agenda. whether it is immigration reform or gun control or the president's opposition to the sequestration and his solution which is, some spending cuts. but also, some serious tax increases. we'll talk with nancy pelosi about that on sunday. alisyn: all right. chris. we'll be watching. thanks a lot. >> you bet. thanks, ali. rick: one of america's most prominent families falling victim to a hacking attack. personal e-mail accounts of former president george h.w. bush and his family broken into. the fallout from this violation of their privacy next. alisyn: and new information on a massive weapons shipment that was intercepted on the high se

to know that your president is going to survive four years. >> remember carol when we talked about john mccain's age. that came up. it was a realistic concern for people. ronald reagan, obviously. i think this is going to hold chris christie back if he has further applebitions to be president. i think we know he does. but it is out of line for someone like that doctor to diagnose, we have a lot of radio shows that diagnose people based on the way they look. it's irresponsible and doctors that know better wouldn't do that kind of thing. chris christie, again, i think he's a role model and could do a lot. he doesn't have to. but he could show people how hard he is trying to lose weight. i also understand how much of a struggle it is, it is difficult emotionally and physically. >> he was elected governor. would you have thought he would have been elected? >> it's fine to be governor, but that's different -- you are running against a president who was in office, who used to come out of the water like bo derek in hawaii. if chris christie doesn't fix it, it will be a problem. >> he's the governor.
and john mccain say any efforts to do so will complicate turning that proposal into actual legislation. emotions are high on both sides of the issue. harry reid said gay immigrants with children should be protected just like anyone else. >>> the u.s. conference of catholic bishops is rejecting the latest compromise on birth control coverage as part of health insurance. the affordable care act required all employers to cover the cost of contraception but just this week, obama agreed places of worship can opt out. the bishops say that does not go far enough since the compromise does not include religious hospitals, charities, colleges or non-profits. we are back with more bill after the break. stay with us. >> interesting across the nation this is "the bill press show" >> bill: john brennan gets grilled by senators over drones. still looks like he is going to be confirmed. what do you say? good morning, everybody, it is friday, friday february 8th a lot to talk about here with the full court press, live from our nation's capitol washington, d.c. your studio
